The flight instructor said the engine began to make a “knocking” noise followed by a total loss of oil pressure. The engine then seized and the propeller “locked up.” The instructor said they were unable to return to the airport and made a forced landing in the Everglades National Park. The nose wheel of the airplane dug into the soft/wet terrain and slowly flipped over resulting in substantial damage to the lower fuselage/firewall. A portion of the nose landing gear also separated from the airframe.
The airplane was recovered and taken to a secure facility for further examination.
